The measurement of luminescence lifetimes plays a crucial role in numerous areas of chemistry, physics, and biology. Lifetime measurements are used in such areas as chemical analysis, assignments of excited-state types, measurements of intermolecular interactions and distances, analysis of motions in micelles, etc. A number of these topics are discussed in detail elsewhere in this volume.
